When we're gentle with our emotions + desires, and fully listen to their calling, we create space for our intuition to emerge.
Tonight I release my lack of trust in my own desires.
What we most deeply desire is a unique expression of our soul and our absolute birthright to fulfill. With a brave heart, answer the roar of your inner lion.
Saturday I made an elk skin drum. During the hours it takes to build, it requires quite a bit of patience and attention to detail. Through this mundane process I discovered I cuss quite a lot when I make mistakes. 😤😂 ✨It's not so much the cussing that I'm taking a look at today, because sometimes it's totally necessary to drop an F-bomb 💣, but rather the impatience and frustration around minuscule missteps. ✨Anger has always been a thing for me, my entire life, and usually connected to perfectionism. I remember accidentally drawing outside the lines in a brand-new coloring book when I was about age 5. I was so pissed I scribbled all over the page and then shred the book to pieces. (#ariesmars 😡🔥) ✨Strength Reversed shows itself as a reminder that when you learn to respond to your own mistakes with gentleness, you'll be able to greet the world from a place of kindness + compassion. Today I plant seeds of gentle, loving patience with my self, and let go of the need to be "perfect."
Have you ever so fiercely pursued something, you totally thought you wanted, and then at the end of the day you still felt empty and longing for more? (Ummm hello?! Like everyday 🙋) This I call Tunnel Vision-Board Syndrome, when you use your Willpower to micro-manage the Universe. Chill the fuck out already! You're missing out on magical opportunities to set your soul free! ✨Control is a result of being attached to a specific outcome, an outcome you're certain is best for you. But how can you be so sure? When you visualize your dream job, ideal vacation, or perfect mate, you may rob yourself of the sweet nectar of living. No matter how much you plan out your life, your wild essence is bubbling, ready to break free from your so carefully curated play-by-play. ✨Let go of the need for it all to go the way you intended. Trust that you're okay no matter the outcome. When you do, all sorts of magical opportunities will flow in and through your life. ✨Note***I'm not denying Vision Boards, The Secret, The Power of Now, or whatever other cute tools you use to manifest your beautiful life, but rather just acting as a reminder to myself, and anyone who cares, that if you're gentle, and listen carefully, w/out attachment to the planned path, you may just be surprised by unexpected delights. When we focus our energy on desires, rather than physical, fixed outcomes, we may find ourselves more joyful than we ever thought possible. And yes, this may involve looking and being very different than you had intended it, and that's more than okay. It's exhilarating! Adventurous! And well, down right sexy! ✨Today, how might you destroy your visions for your ideal future? Today, how might you focus on the desires longing to be heard underneath the perfect vision board? ✨Today, I choose to focus my attention on joy. I am open and receptive to all forms of joy, in whatever shape and form it so magically would like to present itself. ✌️
hen STRENGTH shows up it's a powerful invitation to befriend things that scare the shit out of you. Whether it's parts of yourself, like deep, wild, primal emotions (anger, jealousy, anxiety), or perhaps parts outside of yourself. You may find yourself facing a life situation or decision that's completely terrifying. STRENGTH often shows herself during EMOTIONALLY INTENSE times. This could be times of facing huge fears that stand in the way of aligning you with your truth, like "coming out" about something, whether that be your sexuality or a part of yourself you may be shameful about. I've seen STRENGTH show herself when one has received terrible news, like a family member passing away, a miscarriage, or scary medical diagnoses. Let me be clear, her presence in a reading is absolutely not predicting anything terrible to come, but rather STRENGTH is a reminder that you have more than what it takes to face the spiritual task before you with EASE + GRACE. She gently guides you into a space of exploring your fears with OPTIMISM + FAITH. STRENGTH is an invitation to place your hands on any part of your body where you may be gripping or holding. Deeply breathe in to this space. Nurture + cradle the parts of you that want to run away from your situation. Rather than pushing away, or suppressing, very lovingly invite these darker scary parts of yourself in. Even if it's as INTENSE as a feral lion, which often it is, STRENGTH reminds you that you have what it takes to completely TRANSFORM your FEARS into LOVE. Whatever terrifying life situations you find yourself facing, know that in this moment it is your greatest friend. By sending it PATIENCE + COMPASSION you are forming the ULTIMATE ALLIANCE with that which scares you. Be ready, because this very gentle act will OPEN yourself up to EXPANDING your heart, which by the way is EXPANSIVE + LIMITLESS. HAPPY EQUINOX! Sending you all love!
